I've Found What I'm Looking For!
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:13:58 AM »
Where has this been my whole life??

Been a die-hard U2 fan since I saw them in 2005. My gateways were 1) seeing them on the Vertigo Tour when I was 10 years old, and 2) soon thereafter becoming obsessed with their performance at Live Aid. Can't wait to see the band in Philly and DC next month!

Welcome! I've been here for two months so I'm faily new too.

Did you see Vertigo live or on DVD? Either way, did your parents take/show you? Are they casual fans or more hardcore?

I have been aware of the Live Aid performance for decades but only saw a video once, decades ago, until recently when I went through kind of a thing watching it way too many times and trying to figure it out. My feeling evolved from "what a train-wreck" to "what a glorious performance" pretty quickly. I dragged up an old thread about it if you want to search for Live Aid and share your experience with it.

I saw Vertigo live in Philly. Bruce Springsteen came out for the encore. My parents are casual fans but my brother and I loved HTDAAB.

The performance of Bad at Live Aid gives me chills to this day. Thanks for the response :)

Bruce Springsteen and U2 performing together even for one song, your soo lucky! That is what I'm hoping  for when I'm going to see U2 in september, but of course I don't expect that will happen. :-D So again you lucky one!

And of course WELCOME :D 8) I'm new here too.
